1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2005

This hotel is dire - the room we had, had to be accessed externally from the main hotel. It looks like it was built in the sixties/seventies and not had a refit since then.
The room was tired, dirty, with paint flaking off the walls.
I wrote an email complaining of the state of the hotel - they offered to let me stay again at a reduced rate of $50. Probabley could find nicer backpacker accomodation for that money.

This was an adequate hotel with a friendly staff and a good buffet breakfast. The rooms were a bit rundown but otherwise fine. It was strange that you had to walk through an outdoor area to get to the rooms, which was not too pleasant when it was cold. The main problem was that it was quite a far walk from the downtown area. There was a bus, but it did not run terribly often. Overall, good value for the money but best for those with their own transportation.
